It’s great being part of a church that communicates using social media.
I think it says a lot about a church’s willingness to embrace new forms of communication and stay connected. Also, it’s important to understand that, in many cases, the medium is the message – just using this technology says a lot about an organisation – especially if they are in the ‘people’ business.
Over one thousand people call Kings Christian Church their home church. It has congregations in Buderim, Noosa and Caboolture. Soon expanding out to Nambour and Caloundra.
All 5 of it’s Pastors have twitter accounts and actively use them.
Several of the Pastors have blogs.
I just finished building a fully integrated blog for Senior Pastor Steve Penny, which integrates automatic announcements of news, devotions and sermons to his twitter account and also posts his blog entries to his facebook profile.
The important thing here is a worldwide reach and ease of use. Social media, wordpress blogs and web 2.0 enable that.
